the Ministry Excellence, Support, and Authorization Team of the Local Church Ministries of the United 
Church of Christ, Cleveland, OH. Kathy will begin her new ministry on September 17. Kathy's final day of work

Kathy will be missed by us all, but we celebrate her new ministry! 

Below is the resignation letter from Kathy: 

MEMO TO: The Churches of the Southeast Conference, United Church of Christ 

FROM: Kathy Clark, Associate Conference Minister for Ministry Formation and Leadership Development 

DATE: June 18,2012 

SUBJECT: "... in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."- 1 Thessalonians 

5:18 

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, 

It is with a great deal of thanks that I write to tell you that I have accepted a position on the national staff of the 
United Church of Christ, beginning September 17, 2012. I will be joining the Ministry Excellence, Support, and 
Authorization (MESA) Team of Local Church Ministries as the Minister for Members in Discernment. It is with 
sadness, but gratitude nonetheless, that I must, therefore, resign my position as Associate Conference Minister 
of the Southeast Conference, effective September 15, 2012. 

There will be opportunities to share more words with you later, but please allow me to say that it has been an 
honor and a privilege to serve with you and on your behalf. I have been shaped as a minister, a person of faith, 
and a dedicated member of the United Church of Christ by this conference and have been touched personally by 
so many of you who have shared your stories and journeys with me. I intend to maintain my standing with the 
Georgia-South Carolina Association; the Southeast Conference will always be home to me. 

I will be working closely with our Conference Minister, Dr. Tim Downs; our Administrative Executive, Ms. Gerri 
Ryons-Hudson; and the Associate Minister for Theological Education, Dr. Sarah Kim - indeed all of my 
colleagues on the staff and the Board of Directors - to insure a smooth transition as we move into the future. In 
the words of Paul to the Philippians (1 :6), "I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in 
you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." I hold you all in my heart — you, who have shared in God's 
abundant grace with me. 

Blessings, 

Kathy Clark 

Associate Conference Minister
